Training & Awareness Raising

Families Outside provide tools, resources, and training to those individuals and groups across the statutory and voluntary sectors who come into contact with families affected by imprisonment.

From prison staff and teachers to health and social care professionals, our sessions increase the awareness of the issues and challenges families face and ensure that they continue to receive the support they need.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic our training in the community is on hold.  We are using this time to develop what we offer, and hope to bring you an exciting training programme later this year.

However, we understand that training needs still need to be met and it is important that people can connect with others in a learning environment now more than ever. For this reason we have developed a webinar which will give an overview of the issues families affected by imprisonment face day to day.  These sessions are free, open to everyone and run regularly.  Please keep checking this page for future dates and to sign up for the event.

For more information on our training events please contact our Training Manager Kerry Knox on kerry.knox@familiesoutside.org.uk
